  • This was the most relaxing park in Paris and only noise was birds, Chinese music for some old ladies. And there is interesting playground with very long slide for kids free of charge.  more »

  • A must-see. Not your dad's Paris. Loads to see and do for all ages and great place for photographers. Just go and see if, you won't regret it
  • It was nice 20 years ago when my grandpa was taking us there. But now it's kind of a cheap place. The parc around is still nice though.
  • Great park with lots of space to lie down on a nice day. Good facilities for children - all round lots to see and do and a great place to spend a day
  • An expansive arts and culture venue featuring a diverse and eclectic programme of events, exhibitions and festivals...
